My last stay at the White Cliffs hotel was in Feb of 2017, but I've stayed there many times since 2012 at various times of the year. The staff are very friendly and I've always recived good service. Although the restaurant's menu is a little limited in selection, the food itself is very good. Breakfast is good, but at first...

I had a very comfortable stay, the hotel has everything you need. At-home feeling, clean room and good breakfast. It feels a bit like B&B because I think every room is different and there are some flats in the field. I didn't do it myself but apparently the hotel has a great access to the seaside path and it could...

My family visit the UK from America yearly. We have friends in the same village where this hotel was located so we gave it a go. Very friendly staff, from the owner on down. Cool Land Rover Defender parked out front with courtesy boots and umbrellas for cliff walks. The locals who frequent the hotel's pub were as friendly as...

We ordered scrambled eggs (you could bounce your fork off it), fish chowder (watery, indigestible rubbery fish), mashed potato (more lumps than mash)..... really disappointing as we had eaten there before .....it really was very bad - my 7 year old daughter could do better!

A number of family members had booked in here for a family funeral in the village on a Friday night of what was also half term, and the hotel was quite busy. A few of us had deliberately booked rooms in the annexe wing, which had the benefit of being quiet, although it appeared room sizes varied somewhat. Mine (12,...

Really nice hotel and restaurant. Room and 4 post bed great. So comfortable. Could have done with a bigger mirror and better light in the bathroom. Evening meal and breakfast were really good and service attentive.

Brilliant hotel - friendly, welcoming and very dog friendly. Lovely atmosphere. We stayed the night before the Dover Endurance Life run and they very kindly allowed us to keep on the room until lunchtime so we could come back and shower. Could't have been more helpful.

Thank TheAshs
